Yesterday’s Shadow – December 2017

The last YS of 2017 was an ‘invitational’ where all DJs who’d played the event during the year were invited back for one more go.  I was of course up for it as ever, though the 8 DJ line-up meant sets were necessarily short and an early start the next day also meant an midnight end for me.  I’m still amazed about how much I fitted in, though!

Set 1 – 9:00pm

Front 242 – Geography I
Laibach – Alle Gegen Alle
Kraftwerk – Pocket Calculator
Robert Marlow – The Face of Dorian Gray
Arbeid Adelt! – De dag dat het zonlicht niet meer scheen
Siglo xx – Individuality
Durutti Column – Sketch For Summer
Young Marble Giants – Include Me Out
XTC – Science Friction

Set 2 – 11:30pm

In an era when Whamageddon is actually a thing, cheesy Christmas hits were banned at this event.  Foul-mouthed punky ones?  They’re still OK.  But first better get something tuneful in……

David Bowie – Sound And Vision
Levellers – One Way
Waterboys – The Whole Of The Moon
Big Country – In A Big Country
Adam Ant – Stand And Deliver
Killing Joke – Eighties
Slaughter and the Dogs – Situations
Undertones – Teenage Kicks
UK Subs – Hey Santa
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Comfort And Oi!)
